Serbian-born Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) came to New York in 1928. He saw great potential for alternating current generation and distribution.
Nikola Tesla, who patented an AC induction motor in 1888 and whose name was the inspiration for today's Tesla Motors, was involved in the formative years of electric power development. He was fascinated by the juxtaposition of high frequency and high voltage. He firmly believed that given sufficiently high levels of both these entities, large amounts of power could be transmitted wirelessly, perhaps worldwide.
